Looking back on JI Pre-season Predictions
I was just looking back on the Pre-season prediction thread and got some interesting results. There were 77 concrete predictions given. The results I got were 632 wins and 620 losses. This obviously says that over those 77 predictions the average record people on JI thought the Jets would have is 8-8. These predictions were given prior to Revis and Holmes going down for the year. I can comfortably say that if we were going into the season without those 2 that on average people would have predicted 2 less wins which would constitute to a 6-10 record. I think people forget that we weren't highly regarded going into the season but a lot were optimistic b/c we had what appeared to be an easy schedule and that one reason is why most of the people who had us above 8-8 sighted for having that prediction. Well as it turns out through 13 games we have had the toughest schedule in the NFL and that's without our best offensive and defensive player. 6-7 suddenly doesn't seem like such a disappointment when you look back at what expectations were prior to the season. And now 9-7 doesn't seem out of reach and 8-8 definitely attainable. I won't call anyone out on here but go back to the pre-season thread and look b/c the same people who are driving the "fire Rex" mantra are some of the same people who predicted us to have less or an equal amount of wins as we do now and that was with Revis and Holmes healthy. So the Jets exceeded your expectations yet you're still whining and carrying on like children? Utter FAIL!
